Pamela B. Anderson
1943 ∼ 2021
Pamela B. Anderson (Ellis) of Middleboro passed away in her home January 21, 2021 at the age of 77. Pam was born in Brockton, daughter of the late Eleanor F. (Kingston) and Kenneth B. Ellis.
Mother of Robyn R. Anderson of East Bridgewater and Scott W. Anderson of NC. Long time companion of Wilfred J. Mason, Jr. "Fred" of Middleboro. Mother in law to Sandra Anderson of NC. Grandmother of Jason Carlson, Jessica Anderson and Neil Anderson. Former wife of William F. Anderson. Sister of Kenneth Ellis and his wife Leslie, of East Bridgewater.
Pam grew up in small town EB with her brother Ken, where the gang would hang out at Jimmy Powers store, grab a root beer float at the A&W, or drag race their cars on a local street. She loved music and dancing, and would spend her weekly allowance on records at the music store in the center of town. She had crazy adventures with her good friends Deanna, Marcia and Millie, and would reminisce about the memories repeatedly, until we all could recite them word for word.
She was raised and educated in East Bridgewater graduating from East Bridgewater High School in 1961.
She married Bill Anderson in 1962, and had 2 children, Scott and Robyn, who meant the world to her. Pam and her daughter Robyn had a special bond that will never be broken. She was so proud of her son, Scott, for all his accomplishments, his work ethic, and his will to follow his dreams.
Pam met her partner in crime Fred Mason, whos devotion and caring heart kept her strong and determined throughout her life.
She developed a close relationship with Fred's family, and loved them as her own.
She has 3 grandchildren, Jason Carlson, Jessica Anderson and Neil Anderson, all whom she loved more than the world.
Pam had a love for animals that created a lot of "stray" pets. Her dog Frankie will miss her dearly.
Most of her life was spent in East Bridgewater, but the past 14 years she resided in Middleboro. She enjoyed spending time at Sagamore Beach in the summer, as well as motorcycle rides with Fred. One of her favorite experiences was traveling to Europe with her cousin Patty Ann.
Throughout her life she had jobs as a waitress, real estate appraiser, and sales associate at Filenes. But her most important role was Mom. She had a big heart, and her care and concern for everyone was deep. She was always good for a laugh, and usually the butt of the joke, but her sense of humor was forgiving.
She will be greatly missed. The memories will remain in our hearts, and when we think of a "crazy Gramma Pam" story, we can all smile and be thankful for the laughter and happy times we all had.
